IN one’s reading as well as in one’s encounters with people, unless you can clearly discern and judge what a fact is and what is true, you will end up on the wrong path. The higher one’s standing in the organisation, the greater his responsibility in this regard.

WE must use our faith to tap the great wisdom and life force within us to brilliantly triumph over difficulties and adversity. Those who can do this are practising Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism correctly. They are, in other words, people who “understand the meaning of all worldly affairs.”

NICHIREN DAISHONIN taught, “Life does not go beyond the moment” (WND, p62). Buddhism focuses on this moment of life. The great life-entity of time without beginning is also contained in this fleeting, transitory life-moment. We cannot postpone life to some vague future date; it is the here and now that counts, upon which all depends.

ALL of us undergo various sufferings in life. No human being is without worries and problems. That is why Buddhism, which teaches that earthly desires are enlightenment, is necessary in our lives. We need to transform our karma. That is what Buddhism is for. Be brave! That is Nichiren Daishonin’s cry to us all.

FAITH in the Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin is sure to be accompanied by obstacles. Remember, it is at such times that you can take a great leap towards your happiness.
